# Water Ice on Meteorites

I was reading an article by David O'Brien et al. where it stated

"in meteorites only the water bound to the silicates can be found, all the water ice having been lost, whereas on asteroids water ice itself has been detected"

Now this was published in 2014, so I'm wondering what is the validity of this statement today. Have we, since the publication of this article, discovered water ice on meteorites?

• @Bell - A larger object has the potential to carry more water and an object burning up in the atmosphere was no potential to have surface ice; though past or present H$_2$O may be detected. Japan is landing on asteroid Ryugu, see the Haya2kun Twitter they have almost landed. It appears dry. Maybe there's a bit of ice, it may not be water ice, or maybe there's no ice at all; each are different. NASA's article: "Asteroid or Meteor: What's the difference?" - see their asteroidmission.org . – Rob Aug 17 '18 at 17:00
